My Creative Space

On the weekend the children and I pulled out our water-colours.  It was such a calming time together.  I have not painted for quite some months.  I decided to try my hand at a bit of water-colour illustration in making some cards for Easter.  What do you think?  I really enjoyed it.

Last year at Master J's Steiner kindergarten we browsed through a lovely book by Colleen Leenman.  It was discussing Easter in the Southern Hemisphere and activities to do with children.  All the Easter  gifts in Australian stores are full of Spring and propagandist goods.  There really is not much meaning encouraged these days, albeit even the true meaning of the celebration.

I wanted to incorporate an Australian Autumn theme in my Easter cards.  I hope you like them!  I will pop some up on facebook too, my store is coming soon.  So stay tuned!

Love Rach xo

  9. My smallest had her first kinder harvest festival today. Celebrating Autumn with Easter makes a heck of a lot of sense.

  10. What beautiful cards! I've never thought of the fact that Easter wouldn't be happening in the spring for you. Autumn is such a lovely time, though I am enjoying the beginning of spring here!
